Six weeks is still an eternity in an election, but the trends afoot don't seem to back up the conventional wisdom. Can the Republicans still lose both the House and the Senate? Absolutely. Some critics outside of the Democratic circles would even argue that they should lose in order to be brought back to their senses, especially on fiscal issues.
